Students intending to sit their GCSE or IGCSE exams in May/June 2018 can use the below dates as a guide for when they would need to sit their exams. Exam dates are usually similar to the previous year, so students sitting exams in 2019 should expect similar dates although the provisional 2019 exam dates won’t be released until 2018 (Usually end of February).
